On the smallest level, brain function consists of small chemical events that lead to changes in function between neurons. Neurons are grouped into neurological pathways, wherein thousands of brain cells work together to function as part of a shared circuit. These pathways have an inherent frequency of firing. This firing rate can be viewed as both the efficiency and the endurance of the pathway. When neurological systems are impaired, frequencies of firing decrease.
Medications and supplements can improve the efficiency of neuron communication and help with emotional regulation. Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) allows us to directly and non-invasively stimulate the relevant neurological pathways involved in depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorders. This gives us access to another foundational aspect of your framework, in a way that no medication, supplementation, or other forms of intervention can address.
